Most Patriotic Rock SongsGreat Rock n' Roll music is one thing and great Rock n' Roll with a purpose is another. These songs had tremendous emotional impact on my life and I don't even think I can listen to one of these without a tear or struggling to hold down that lump in my throat.
Axl at his prime looking beyond the bottle whipped out this little masterpiece.
I feel like something very precious is slipping away from me when I hear this. I don't hear it too often, but when I do I cry.
This is definitely not a patriotic song, Jimi uses the national anthem to criticize Vietnam War
This is by far the best patriotic song ever. Bruce really captures what it means to be an American, and shoves it down everyones throats in a super powerful and... Well American kind of way. Patriotism doesn't get any stronger than this song. The epitome of being an American.
Wow this is an anti-American, anti-war song. Not patriotic at all, this is THE most misunderstood song ever, people these days are not very smart.
Not patriotic, it is an anti-war and anti-American song. People need to read the lyrics. When Reagan used it, Springsteen told him to screw off.
I was stationed in Iceland with the U.S. navy and we played this on the Fourth of July. CPT Burns, USA (ret)

If you ever changed the radio station when this song came on; Shame, shame, shame...
To me... This sums up the American soul of John Mellencamp.

Definitely an all time favorite, at the time this was a
Song for our " Generation ".
Bob wont pull your leg. He calls it like he sees it.
This is a copycat of Bruce Springsteen's Ghost of Tom Joad. This band killed the song...
This song is more sobering than a 12-step meeting.
Bar-none; it's more American than Irish.
This is not a pactrotic song
The best patriotic Pop/Rock ever. CPT Burns USA (ret)
Folk/Pagan Song in the Gaulish language. According to the band themselves: "It's a pretty patriotic song actually - a kind of love song for ones' tribe's homeland if you want."
